Ellie Kemper announced her pregnancy Wednesday night on the Tonight Show, and from the story she told, it's somewhat surprising the news didn't leak earlier. She was supposed to ride a rollercoaster for an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt scene she was filming, Kemper explained, but since it was still so early in her pregnancy at the time, she told everyone she wouldn't be able to do it because she'd hurt her back. "I'm an actress, presumably," she said, but "I could not act like I had a back injury." Watch the video in our gallery. (Read more Tonight Show stories.)
